Wallowa enters season with strong core
Wallowa volleyball kicks off season on the road against Union Thursday at 6 p.m.
The Wallowa volleyball squad enters the 2014 season hoping to improve at the same rate it did last season.
After starting the season with a six-game losing streak, the Cougars bounced back to finish second at the district tournament. As a result, they earned a home state playoff match against Prairie City, but lost in five games.
Head coach Janea Hulse will now have to replace six seniors from last year’s squad. This season, her four seniors are the team captains with Taylor Harshfield, Cheyenne Hall, Kristyn Young and Macey Frei. With no juniors on the team, Hulse said all of her seniors are playing important leadership roles to help guide the younger girls.
